Premier coffee at the touch of a button: let the Miele CM5500 delight your tastebuds. Compact and full-featured, the CM5500 packs in programming that belies its pricepoint—including coffee pot brewing, one-touch controls, and over 8 unique drink presets. The CM5500 also improves on the features of the lesser CM5300, adding programmable drink menus for two, and a center-mounted hot water spout for its custom Americano drink option. All this convenience-focused functionality pairs perfectly with the 5500's soft bronze coloring and minimalist case shape, ensuring this best-in-class superautomatic fits in any kitchen.
